Fertilize after Overseed - Starter or Ironite
I just over seeded my lawn on Sept 18. (Best of the blues from seedland). I had my lawn care company put down a starter fertilizer instead of my normally scheduled fertilizer on Sept. 22. 18-24-12.
So what is my next step with fertilizing? Another round of starter fertilizer? If so, when?
Also, what are your thoughts on using Ironite? One of my neighbors uses it all summer long and I have to say their grass is super green. Even though it has cooled down, I still have some yellowing in some areas. I had a soil test done late last year and it showed lower phosphorous and not iron so I'm a bit perplexed to why I still have a yellowing issue. My lawn care company did a higher phosphorous feed in May of this year to take care of that. Otherwise, all the other levels were fine.
Background - Lawn was laid in May 2007 with a contractor mix I assume. I keep the grass higher when it is really hot. Watered at least once a week deeply. Never take more than an inch off and keep my blades sharp. Yet my grass scalping neighbor with no watering looks greener than mine does now (although it didn't before). Yes, I probably am pouting lol. :)
Thanks in advance for any advice.
